1994 Topps #447 Mike Williams

1993 Phillies - Supporting Cast

Uniform Number: 41
1993 Stats: Pitched in 17 games (4 as a starter and 13 as a reliever), with a 1-2 record and a 5.29 ERA.
1993 Notable: His only win came against the Dodgers on July 7th, pitching the final 6 innings of a 20-inning game. (Jim Eisenreich scored on Lenny Dykstra's ground rule double in the bottom of the 20th).
How Acquired: First stint - Drafted by the Phillies in the 14th round of the June 1990 draft; Second stint - Acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates for Frank Brooks, July 21, 2003
Phillies Career: 1992-1996; 2003
How Departed: First stint - Granted free agency, December 20, 1996 (Signed with the Boston Red Sox); Second stint - Granted free agency, October 14, 2003 (Signed with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays' organization)

Mike was thisclose to making the Phils' 1993 Postseason roster, but they decided to go with outfielder Tony Longmire instead. His 2nd stint with the Phillies was undeniably a disaster, as he went 0-4 with a 5.96 ERA during the 2003 stretch run.
